Re-formed Evian playing in seventh tier after financial meltdown


Evian were relegated from the top flight in 2014-15.

Evian, a Ligue 1 side only two seasons ago, will start from scratch in the seventh tier of French football after being disbanded and re-formed.

The club, who once counted Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane and fellow World Cup-winner Bixente Lizarazu among their minority shareholders, were relegated from the top flight in 2014-15 and dropped out of Ligue 2 the following year.

After being placed into liquidation in August 2016, Evian did not have a senior team in competition last season with only their under-19 side in action.

They have now been renamed Thonon Evian Savoie and will play in the Regional 2 league next season.
